Replacing the tyres of your car every two to three years is very important. Most car tyres have a finite life, and should be replaced when the car hits 50,000 kilometres, or every two to three years. However, most people don’t really know much about how to buy new tyres for their vehicle. Some important factors that should be taken into consideration before buying new tyres include the following:
- Tyre brands
- Tyre width and size
- Buying new or second-hand
If you are interested in buying tyres in Bexhill-on-Sea, here are a few things you should know.
Always Buy New
Make sure you always buy new tyres for your vehicle. While there are plenty of companies that sell refurbished and reconditioned tyres, there’s no way to really know how the tyres have been driven. Furthermore, most tyres have a finite shelf life. Since they are made of rubber, you should always check that the manufacturing date of the tyres is not more than six months old. With time, the rubber tends to lose shape when stored on the shelves for too long, which is why you should always buy new tyres with the latest manufacturing date.
Balancing and Alignment
Similarly, when you buy new tyres for your car, you should make sure that you take your vehicle to the company’s shop for alignment and wheel balancing. Make sure the car’s tyres have been properly aligned and balanced after the tyres have been replaced.
